CANCELED - The Whole Story Book Group

We thank you for your understanding and hope to see you at future events.

The whole story is back with and has gotten a bit of a redesign! Still meeting on the last Friday of each month, our focus in 2020 will be reading books written by women of color. However, instead of the entire group reading the same title, each month we will have a list of 6 titles that participants can choose from! 

Adults and teenagers are welcome to join as we discuss The Whole Story!
